“Passable- just about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Spacious restaurant within the old city area. Friendly staff with limited English but helpful .
Good value- 750ml of the house wine is just €7.
The tapas were cheap but average.
The xato was a disappointment.
We ordered the meat paella, which was ok, but have certainly had better within the town.
A friend ordered pizza which arrived with a charred base- they claimed it was the different base and offered us a new one which was better.

“Delicious unpretentious tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Always eat here when in Sitges. Good selection of seafood, meat, local specialities and all a reasonable price. Good location to watch the world go by too.

“good tapas with reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Sitges. While it is nothing fancy, one can get good quality tapas here with generous portions for very reasonable price. if you are looking for a casual place for tapas and you like seafood, this is the place to go to. The cuttle fish was absolutely delicious, as were the fried little calamaris and the pulpo. The grilled dorada fish was good too. I would recommend this reservation without hesitation.

“Great pulpo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Visiting for a week and glad to say we tried this on our first night having nearly missed it and went back. Loved the food, it was good pricing compared to the rest of the area. Tried different dishes on several nights and not disappointed. The food is a variety of fish and meat, all was lovely. It is not a gourmet fish restaurant and doesn't claim to be, however it provides variety and good flavour. It is very much a locals restaurant which is why we were drawn to it in the first place. The only let down is the service is very variable depending on whom you get serving - two nights it was great and the lady serving us was very friendly and spoke to us, on one night it was awful and have to say felt like one person whom left comments on here in that 'it felt like they didn't care whether you came back or not' which was a real shame. If we return and that element has improved, I'd give this place five stars in comparison to the other local restaurants.
